"A few words may suffice to tell the little that remains. An examination by experts leaves little doubt that a personal contest between the two men ended, as it could hardly fail to end in such a situation, in their reeling over, locked in each other's arms. Any attempt at recovering the bodies was absolutely hopeless, and there, deep down in that dreadful cauldron of swirling water and seething foam, will lie for all time the most dangerous criminal and the foremost champion of the law of their generation."

- The Adventure of the Final Problem

Now, as we all know, Reichenbach will feature in the second series of Sherlock, which is not airing until the New Year. However, what I have done is come up with the nearest possible equivalent from the first series (nothing gets in the way of Raks Patel promoting Sherlock!):

And that face - classic! Which is another excuse for me to give a HUGE shout out to the genius that is Andrew Scott! (and yes, in case you have not guessed, I am totally smitten with Mr Scott, after Emperor and Galilean!).

Have you any clues at all about what Andrew Scott is doing next? He deserved a huge holiday after the Ibsen, but surely – hopefully – we'll be able to see him in something else again soon other than his reprised role as Jim Moriarty...

I said I would love to see him doing Shakespeare next. He joked that he had been given his "orders"!

The best place to keep up to date with Andrew Scott and his activities is Andrew Scott Online which is here:
